    Sun Protection

    Skin cancer is a great concern for kids and adults, skin cancer is on the rise but taking a few precautions can help reduce the chance of skin damage caused by the sun. Make sure kids wear at least an SPF 30 sunscreen every time they go outside even if it is not a sunny day, the overcast skies can be just as damaging to the skin as sunny skies. Have kids where a hat and sunglasses if they feel comfortable, it is a great way to protect the ears, head, neck and eyes from sun exposure as they areas tend to be susceptible to sun damage.

    Bug Bites

    Older kids can benefit from wearing insect repellent but making sure to wash the repellent off at the end of the day once their outdoor activities are over is equally as important. Younger children can benefit from being covered as much as possible such as long sleeved, light weight and light colored fabric as a good choice. If bug allergies are a concern such as bee stings, make sure to have the appropriate medications on hand and make people aware of your child's medical concerns whom are often around your child.

    Staying Hydrated

    Kids should be drinking water throughout the day to stay hydrated, a water bottle carried around through the day can really help to prevent dehydration and sluggishness. Drinking lots of water is so important especially when kids are out in the hot sun and children's bodies tend to lose a lot of water through sweat.

    Bicycle Safety

    Children get around by bike and most love to just ride around the neighborhood but knowing the rules of the road and protecting the body while bicycling is of great importance. Most drivers license facilities offer bicycle safety brochures for free and taking the time to go over the rules for bicycle traveling can really help to keep a child safe. There are many areas of the body that can be protected while riding a bicycle but the most important area to protect is the head, bicycle helmets are readily available at discount stores and specialized sporting good stores.

    Hot Cars

    It is imperative to never leave a child of any age in a closed up car in the summer for even a few minutes. Even on a cool day with the sun shining can cause a car to heat up quickly, kids especially infants can overheat and get heat stroke in a matter of minutes. The few minutes saved by not removing a child from a vehicle is not worth the risk of death to your precious cargo.

    Fireworks Safety

    Kids should never be allowed to play with any type of fireworks of any kind. Fireworks of any type give off tremendous heat and a serious burn or body part damage is always something that is possible when fireworks are being used. Fireworks should be left to the professionals.

    Poisonous Ivy and Other Poisonous Plants

    Educating kids on the poisonous plants that may surround their play area is the first and most important step in poison prevention. If poisonous contact does occur, make sure to have any over the counter medication or prescription medication on hand so that the medication can be applied immediately to the affected area.
